EVENT: The Natural History Museum Ice Rink
Festive songs play as you make your way around this 950-square-metre rink, which is surrounded by fairy light-covered trees. For little skaters there are mini penguin pushers, offering a helping hand.
When your feet have had enough, check out the rink-side bar, serving food and festive treats like mulled wine and warming hot chocolate. If all that isn't enough, the boutique Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel, situated minutes from the rink is offering a ‘Skate & Stay' package, which includes a pair of skating tickets and overnight accommodation!
For £15 more you can try the ‘Spirit of Christmas' package, which offers a bespoke candle-making course with Rachel Vosper, one of the UK's leading chandlers. Pick your favorite scent and create a unique gift while enjoying some Champagne and mince pies. You'll then be invited to enjoy a Winter Warmer Martini at the Lowndes Bar & Kitchen.
Skate and Stay package £225 per room per night, Spirit of Christmas package £240 per room per night. Visit jumeirahlowndeshotel.com for more information.
